Moussaoui Speaks

MOUSSAOUI SPEAKS….The latest from the Moussaoui trial:

Zacarias Moussaoui testified in an Alexandria courtroom this morning that he was tapped by Osama bin Laden to hijack a plane and fly it into the White House as part of the terrorist attacks that claimed nearly 3,000 lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

….He said he was supposed to head a five-man crew that also would have included Richard Reid, a British citizen who tried to set off explosives in his shoes aboard a transatlantic flight two months after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Well, that testimony certainly explains why his attorneys thought he’d be wise to stay off the stand, doesn’t it?
